Re: John Tenta aka Earthquake
I loved the way WWE introduced him and built the feud he had with Hogan. IMO, he should have been WWE's top heel for the next few years. Natural Disasters wasn't completely bad but I felt it held him back.
Also enjoyed him in the Oddities. Loved that group.
IMO, his WCW run was horrible. Could have been better but WCW chose to go the Big Show route. I want to say he did a dropkick in either the Hogan match at Summerslam 1990 or with Typhoon against LOD at Royal Rumble 1992 but it's been years since I've seen either match.
And he actually seemed like a nice guy. Don't know for sure, as I never met him but I've never heard anything bad about the guy.
